Clean dirty hard­ware are us­ing meths

Computer Active (UK) - - Reader's Tips Special Issue -

I’ve been buy­ing bits of tech for many years – from wire­less mice to pocket me­dia play­ers. A lot of this kit comes cov­ered in a thin layer of soft rub­ber, which even­tu­ally be­comes sticky and cov­ered in fluff and dust.

I’ve tried sev­eral house­hold clean­ing prod­ucts with­out suc­cess. Then one day while sort­ing ing through my garage I found an old bot­tle of methy­lated spirit and thought I would give it a go. Hey presto! It got rid of this hor­ri­ble stuff. In fact it left my kit in the kind of con­di­tion it should have been in when first bought.
